Musicians and guitarists searching for “one pedal to rule them all” may be interested in a new multi path, multi band, Looper/mixer which has been created by VFE Pedals. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Klein Bottle which is now available to back via Kickstarter with pledges starting from $159 for a barebones DIY kit, which is expected to start shipping during March 2018.
The Klein Bottle Has been specifically designed for “noise makers, soundscape artists, endless tinkerers and tone wizards” and splits the input signal into three FX loops. Each FX loop has dedicated controls for pre-gain, HPF/LPF (bandwidth filters), and main mix level.
Back in 2011, VFE founder Peter Rutter and his brother Joe had the same crazy idea. What if there was a pedal that allowed you to overdrive the bass, mid and treble frequencies separately, and then mix them back together? What if you could tune the frequencies sent to each drive section? What if you could use your favorite overdrive, distortion, and fuzz pedals? All specs are estimated based on the components used in the design :
DIMENSIONS – 6.2″W x 5″L x 1.6″H – 2.2″ with knobs (158 x 127 x 41/56 mm)
WEIGHT – About 2.5 lbs (1.1 kg)
POWER – Accepts industry standard 9VDC, all the way up to 18VDC. We recommend using 18V if you plan on using the Klein Bottle with line level sources.
CURRENT DRAW – 50ma @ 9V, 100ma @ 18V
